NNC Releases Study of NWS Riverine Flood Forecast Products

With support from two different grants from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Nurture Nature Center has released two studies detailing how public audiences use National Weather Service flood forecast and warning tools. The first study looked at how New Jersey and Pennsylvania audiences in the Delaware River Basin use the suite of riverine flood forecast products issued by NWS.  Findings include recommendations for improvements to design and timing of products, and insights for how products can be better used to motivate appropriate public action. The study is available at socialscience.focusonfloods.org.
